With technological processes, various varieties of glass have been produced that offer unmatchable strength, toughness and durability.

A swimming pool is always a great addition to any house, and not just because of the fun and relaxation that it has to offer. A well-designed swimming pool can elevate the aesthetics of your house as well, thereby contributing to a rise in the property value.

These days, swimming pools constructed of glass are gaining huge popularity. Despite what people might think, glass is far from a brittle material. With technological processes, various varieties of glass have been produced that offer unmatchable strength, toughness and durability.

Additionally, glass can be used to extraordinary effect in order to construct glazing for swimming pools, or turning them into infinity pools where the water flows over the edge, giving the impression of a boundary-less pool.

If you are wondering which type of glass will be suitable for your swimming pool glazing, then the answer is laminated glass.

As the name suggests, it consists of three layers: two sheets of glass with a PVB (Polyvinyl butryl) layer sandwiched in between.

This architectural glass is carefully crafted to be shatter-proof, and allows the swimming pool walls to handle a large amount of pressure. Let’s take a look at the different varieties of laminated glass on offer:

  1. Securityglas

This laminated glass type has specialized PVB plastic interlayers which offer a high degree of intrusion resistance. The lamination doesn’t dampen visibility, and one is able to see through the glass more clearly than ever. It is widely used in roof lights, canopies, windows, overhead glazing, skylights, domes, glass lift walls, and, of course, swimming pool glazed areas.

  1. Valuglas

This is a heat-strengthened laminated glass which provides tremendous structural strength and durability. It is distortion-free, and comes with a 1.14 mm PVB interlayer. Again, it is also used in doors, windows, stairways, roof lights, canopies, and glazing.

  1. Securityplus

This laminated glass type is the strongest of them all, offering up to five times more strength than conventional laminating materials. It employs a reinforced layer of DuPont SentryGlasTM which lets it provide unbeatable structural stability without much support. It is used to design structures that are hurricane and explosion-resistant, and can tolerate high stress loads. The glass also remains clean and clear despite years of usage.

Always remember to order laminated glass for your swimming pool glazing from recommended architectural glass manufacturers. Designing and constructing a swimming pool for your home is a very critical process, and demands materials of only the highest quality and guarantee.
